The New York Times > Technology > Clinton Calls Appearance a Speech, Not a Pitch

The New York Times > Technology > Clinton Calls Appearance a Speech, Not a Pitch: "It may not have been the same as Bob Dole pitching Viagra, but Bill Clinton gave a speech yesterday that helped draw attention to a new product.
Mr. Clinton appeared last night at Tavern on the Green in New York as part of the introduction of an Internet search engine called Accoona. He spoke for about 10 minutes about the Internet and public policy.
...
Perhaps the company's most significant investor is the Chinese government-controlled China Daily Information Company, which will put the Accoona search engine on both its Chinese and English Web sites.
The site's name is derived from the song "Hakuna Matata" from the Walt Disney movie "The Lion King." The song's name is a Swahili phrase that means "no worries.""

Perhaps "no worries" for the Chinese government; I'd like to see Accoona's filtering policy.
